About the Course
In the course, you will learn about the life cycle of an IT system and different models for the software engineering process and its central work flow. You will learn how to describe and evaluate commonly occurring architectures for IT systems, with emphasis on web applications and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The course includes a project, where you will use an object-oriented systems development methodology and language for both the server and client side, to develop a dynamic web application that includes a mapping component and/or another GIS element. In the course, you will also learn central concepts in the area of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and possibility to apply basic HCI principles for evaluating user friendliness of an existing web application.
